Running on a new, updated Windows 10 machine with no virtual environment. After removing all previous Python installations, rebooting and performing a fresh install if Python 3.9.1. I run the python console and type:
import sqlite3

I receive the following error:
Python 3.9.1 (tags/v3.9.1:1e5d33e, Dec  7 2020, 17:08:21) [MSC v.1927 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sqlite3
